Bio and Links
Bio Photo Edward Wise Spannaus of Lovettsville, Loudoun County, Virginia, is Vice-president of the Lovettsville Historical Society, and is a Trustee of the Lovettsville Union Cemetery Company.
My ancestors on my mother's side were 18th century emigrants from the Palatinate who first came to Pennsylvania and then Maryland; on my father's side they were 19th century emigrants from Thuringen and also from north Germany, who first came to Wisconsin and Minnesota.
I have been married to Nancy Ellen Bradeen since 1968; her Bradeen ancestors of Maine, arrived in Massachusetts around 1650, and worked in the famous Saugus iron works.

In the Spring of 2012, I was involved in organizing the 150th Anniversary Reunion of Loudoun Ranger descendants. The Independent Loudoun Virginia Rangers were the only military unit from Confederate Virginia to fight with the United States Army in the Civil War. In the course of this, Jen Snoots and I were able to add many more burials to her Loudoun Ranger virtual cemetery, http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=vcsr&GSvcid=45269

RE: Capt Simon Elliott Chamberlin
This article in The Washington Post mentions a descendant, who is also a historian. You might be able to track him down by contacting the reporter who wrote both stories.

Capt Simon Elliott Chamberlin
Find A Grave Memorial# 45732733

The date of birth you submitted: May 8 1834 has been changed from May to June.

Two sources have June as the month of birth:

THE CHAMBERLAIN ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA REPORT OF ANNUAL MEETINGS HELD IN BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, IN 1908, 1909 AND 1910 WITH MEMORIAL SKETCHES OF MEMBERS OF THE ASSOCIATION

and Captain Chamberlin's obituary in The Evening Star Tuesday, April 21, 1908.

RE: Spannaus photos
There are a couple of photo volunteers that are trying to photograph all of the known sites for Woodland Cemetery. We are currently at 47% covered. Photographing the mausoleum was part of that effort.

Glad you are pleased with the results.

Thank you so much for looking for us!
